This week I'm posting a much-loved quotation from Neil Gaiman's short story "A Study in Emerald". The last two sentences of this quote always spring to mind when I'm bored:
"I have been told that I snore," he said. "Also I keep irregular hours, and I often use the mantlepiece for target practice. I will need the sitting room to meet clients. I am selfish, private and easily bored. Will this be a problem?"You can read "A Study in Emerald" in its entirety here. You can also download an audiobook version (narrated by Gaiman) for free at Audible.com. I highly recommend it. Sherlock Holmes meets Cthulhu. Yes, it's as weird and wonderful as it sounds.-- Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things, "A Study in Emerald"
